I don't know if her story has been here but here is the background;<br><br><a href="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/03/17/MNGGEON77L1.DTL" target="_blank">http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...NGGEON77L1.DTL</a><br><br>
What is wrong with these kids? How can they be so cruel? I mean..it started when the poor girl had epilepsy seizure on 6th grade(you have to read to halfway to the article to read her story). What makes teenagers so mean?<br><br>
Here is what happened next;<br><br><a href="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/05/23/MNGTFPVVON1.DTL&hw=bullying&sn=003&sc=832" target="_blank">http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...&sn=003&sc=832</a><br><br>
Those two sisters' parents should be proud of them.<br><br>
Obviously bullying is a big problem in schools?<br><br>

There's been a lot in the news on cyberbullying over the past few years. It's much easier for people to do who maybe wouldn't have the guts (? not sure that's the right word) to do in real life. They can hide behind the anonymity of the 'Net.<br><br>
"Nationwide, more than 4 in 10 teens have been victims of taunts and threats via social network Web sites such as MySpace and Facebook, instant messages and text messages from cell phones, a new survey says. One in 8 reported feeling scared enough to stay home from school, according to the survey by the National Crime Prevention Council."<br><br>
It's horrible. Completely horrible.

Thanks for posting this, made me cry.<br>
I was bulied throughout all of school due to a facial birth defect I have.<br>
This was 20+ years ago (!) (I'm old <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> ) and teachers, ect did NOTHING even while it was going on in front of their faces everyday.<br>
Has totally affected my life- even now at age 36.<br><br>
Anyhow, it was nice to read this story.
